I don't see any reason...

...why I can't get a star on the Hollywood walk of fame. I mean, Tinkerbell?

I'd also like nominate Ferg.

The 2009 Star Recipients are...


Tinkerbell, Tim Burton, Leslie Caron,
Cameron Diaz, Robert Downey, Jr.,
Charles Durning, Ralph Fiennes,
Hugh Jackman, Sir Ben Kingsley and William H. Macy

Pretzel Note: I can get behind everyone of those motion pictures folks. Except Tinkerbell. She's a cartoon. (I love William H. Macy.)

Mark Burnett, Felicity Huffman, Chuck Lorre, William Petersen,
Kyra Sedgwick, and John Stamos

Pretzel Note: I'm not sure if the man who gave us Survivor and Are you smarter than a 5th grader? should be applauded. And I'd like confirm that Uncle Jesse does deserve his star.

Kenny “Baby Face” Edmonds, Dave Koz, The Miracles, Doug Morris,
RUSH, Shakira and The Village People

Pretzel Note: Really? RUSH?

Bill Handel and Harry Shearer

Pretzel Note: Yeah, I don't them either.

Look! We can nominate people. On the Hollywood chamber of commerce page FAQ it states:

Q: Who can do the nominating?
A: Anyone, including a fan, can nominate a celebrity as long as the celebrity or his/her management is in agreement with the nomination. If there is no letter of agreement included from the celebrity or his/her representative, the committee will not accept the application.

Pretzel Note: So, I'm going to assume most of the folks who have stars were nominated by someone in their inner circle. Sad.

Q: What is the cost of a Walk of Fame star ceremony?
A: $25,000 upon selection. The money is used to pay for the creation and installation of the star, as well as maintenance of the Walk of Fame.

Pretzel Note: I guess this means that the celebrity pays for their own star? Isn't that like when Michael Scott presented himself with a, "World's Best Boss" trophy?

Q: Can I nominate someone who doesn’t fit in any of the five categories?
A: No. The categories do not change and the nominee must be or have been active in the field of entertainment.

Pretzel Note: Shoot. Ferg's out.

  1. Man-o-man, they are just GIVING those stars away to anyone. I thought picking the people was a little more formal and there was alot of thought. Guess, not really. If they have to pay for their own star, weird. I loved the Michael Scott comparison - you are right on!

    Um, I LOVE Rush!!!

  2. K.Ann Marie, you just outed your age...or mine....RUSH is considered to be a critcally accalimed...if Candian band...of extreme talent and who I saw in concert in 1985 with Donnie in Tucson. These three Canadian gentlemen...um....well, they had odd names, but good music and won many a Juno.

    I shall be burning a copy of Trees and Tom Sawyer for you T.O.D.A.Y.


    Sister sister sister.......and an attack on TINKERBELL??? are you serious. For the first since the Britney Spears/Mom debate we are on different pages.

  3. Well that's a major oversight on Hollywood's part.

    (I don't like RUSH at all. Hate their sound.)
